The role of "match" and "mirroring" in training

Creating a report in a training relationship is absolutely necessary to succeed throughout the entire process. In most cases, coaches are very natural in creating a report and can put it without too much effort. However, the "match and mirroring" method can not be used when a strong article is done quickly.

When we use matching and reflection, we are working in a verbal manner. We can match and reflect:

1.) The client's body. Here it is important to emphasize that matching and reflection should be done with great subtletty, rather than imitating others. The idea is to make a small change in your entry or place until you match either (do the exact same) or the reflection (made mirror) of the customer. After some time your position and client changes, it means you have entered the "leading" course and the report has been verified.

2.) The gestures of the customer. If you work with someone who uses highly-expressed actions, you might want to match those with similar to your actions. Again, the subtle is very important. To match and mirror, you can follow the same procedure as in number 1 above.

3.) Respiratory rate of the client. This is a very effective way to build rapport at a bug level but needs a certain experience. Follow the same steps as described above.

As a preparation tool, it is always useful to monitor and mirror the face. When someone smiles at you, it's a natural instinct to smile back. Once you've verified a report and have reached the "Leading Level" process, you can "lead" your customers to "smiling status". You can let them follow you to sit upright, be relaxed and smile and this should immediately bring them into a more relaxed and optimistic state of mind.

As you can see, using the matching and reflection process, you will not only need to clarify your report but also your client to get in a smart and open position, so work better.
